The Elektroautobauer Tesla wants to reduce his workforce for economic reasons. "We have to make a difficult decision and let about nine percent of our colleagues go," wrote Tesla chief Elon Musk in an e-mail to his staff. At end of 2017 Tesla had about 37,500 full-time employees, according to his own data, job cuts are should refore meet more than 3,000 employees.
The redundancies are intended to reduce costs in order to get closer to goal of profitability, Musk wrote furr. But he's not alone in money. "Since Tesla has not yet made an annual profit in nearly 15 years of its existence, our motivation is obviously not profit."
In recent years, it has come to construction of some of more redundant and sometimes twice-occupied positions, Musk shared. In addition, job cuts are will not affect production sites, so production of Model 3 electric car will not be furr burdened.Furr manufacturing problems with Model 3
Tesla had high hopes for Model 3: With a price of 35,000 US dollars, it should come from niche to a wider market. More than 400,000 reservations were received, but Tesla has had problems to work on this since official start of production in summer of 2017. Production is already half a year behind its original schedule and wants to reach brand of 5,000 vehicles per week now by end of June.
